Wrapping Gifts

Do you like to wrap? 

Me, not so much.  
I mean if it were one or two items it'd be kinda fun, but at 
Christmas when there's a big pile, it's really not my thing.
So I try to keep it simple.

Here's my wrapping advice:

The Supplies
I love short rolls of much easier to manoeuvre and cut.
String is less work than ribbon.
Ikea tags are adorable!
Always use transparent wrapping tape!!!

The Gifts
Use a box for items that are a tricky shape.

If you can't find a box, wrap the item in tissue first to give it softer sides.

ALWAYS remove price tags including the sticky residue they often leave behind!!
Including a gift receipt is kind if it is an item that might not fit.

The Goal
Don't go overboard.  
Remember all this is gonna end up in the garbage so aim for pretty but not over the top.

  1. Those are beautiful! I love a nicely wrapped gift. I'm totally going to use the twine idea. But first I need to buy gifts.
